July 2017: The Research Acceleration and Innovation Network (TRAIN) E-News

New on TRAIN Central Station: Foundations as Collaboration Conveners

Throughout FasterCures’ engagement with TRAIN organizations, we have heard that stakeholders are increasingly asking foundations to be the “honest brokers” of collaborative research. Building and sustaining these collaborations requires balancing competing interests and calls for different skills than the individual grant-making process that foundations are used to. To address this emerging trend, FasterCures compiled a variety of templates, publications, and other resources from across sectors to guide these efforts. Our latest report and toolkit are complementary resources that offer insights on how to streamline the planning and execution of collaborative initiatives by foundations. The toolkit will be a living resource that we will add to as we hear from TRAIN organizations. Use these resources to facilitate collaborative processes, from governance structures to sharing data.
